What UC Irvine is doing about what it’s like (and a CFP!)
May 25, 2014 § 2 Comments
The graduate women in the department’s of Philosophy and Logic and Philosophy of Science at UC Irvine have organized the Hypatia Society, a group working to improve the retention of (and experience for) graduate women in our departments. Most recently, we have organized a major conference on gender at UCI (the first for our departments), set for this October – our confirmed invited speakers are Azizah al-Hibri (Richmond), Claudia Card (UW-Madison), Ann Cudd (U Kansas), and Helen Longino (Stanford). There will also be eight contributed talks, and on the second day, there will be an hour-long round-table discussion of the status of women in philosophy. Find out more here. Please, share widely and feel free to submit an abstract! We hope to make this a spectacular event.
